My HDD just reached 55,500 power on HOURS. That's more than 6 straight years of constant usage. What do you make of this?

The majority of those 55,500 hours were dedicated to just fucking the 9/11 conspirator's shit up too....


Maybe I have good Karma.

The thing still purrs like a kitten and performs well.

Hence, I'll continue to just fuck your shit right up.

A new video will be coming to expose you, and you'll be devastated.

My old pistol still has it in it, and still has it in it to get 100+ - 130+ FPS in Rainbow six Siege and most modern games.

This motherfucker will hit 100,000 hours, with no issues. I know exactly what I'm doing, and have backups.

People in the future will question how I did this.

First of all, every component of my rig meets military standards, including the entire motherboard and video card, which are independent of each other. The Ram as well also is military grade.

You can kick this rig around as hard as you can. Without a pair of pliers and a power tool, you're not damaging this thing at all.

Anyhow, back to the drawing board to continue to combat your efforts of deception and EVIL. Evil meets EVIL. (They don't like each other)

I was told many years ago turning them on and off wears them out faster. The repeated heating and cooling of the wires. I just leave it on too.

Could be true,and I've found they can go bad, even when unused.

I recently tried to use a low hours on backup hard drive that was put away and not turned on for a couple of years.

I know it was good when last used, but now -- completely dead, it won't even spin up.

Luckily I had other backups, but something to think about

Another thing I forgot, with SSDs if they aren't powered on regularly they can lose data, since the electrical charges on the logic gates need to be refreshed now and then (I think)

I think I read somewhere that some loose data after only 3 months or so of not being powered on

Inside my current PC is an about 10 years old intel 80gb x25-m SSD which has been ported over from my last system with both PCs having been always on.
The intel S.M.A.R.T utility says it is in perfect condition and has a long life in front of it still.

[link to ark.intel.com (secure)]


However, both PCs had lots of RAM (current one has 32GB) allowing me to turn off the windows pagefile(virtual memory) completely as this is a SSD killer.

Another SSD killer is the hibernation file which basically stores your RAM contents onto your SSD/HDD before powering off, such that you can restore the same state as before the shut down.


Finally, by enabling compression on the drive, the life is extended by another 30-50% depending on the average compression ratio you can achieve based on what kind of files you store.


That drive is pretty old and has a low MTBF compared to more modern drives. So i cannot imagine how long a modern one would last me.

Of course, such a drive like mine would have died early if used for server purposes but for my use case it served and serves me well still.

At work I have two DEC VAX computers with their original HDDs that haven't been shut off since 1996 (except for a few base-wide power failures of a few hours each). Still run like new.

I have HDD that are about 30 years old and still work, not that they worth using now, with such low capacity.

They dont last so long now, as they all made in china.

Its really not that much. Hard drives today have MTBF numbers in the millions of hours.

Google your drive model with MTBF. Youll be shocked how long these drives are designed to last without maintenance.

I wouldn't say high failure rates. The Barracuda line was made for a different use case.
If you require reliability and 24/7 operation, the exos line is the way to go.
